Sounds like it is either a defective battery (in which case they should replace your battery), or a defective power supply (in which case they will likely replace your rMBP if its not something they can easily repair). I suspect it's a defective battery, though.
It would be advised that you make a backup before you head to the Apple Store, just in case. Either way, since the battery is internal, it may require them sending it to a repair facility.

Stephen Porritt what happened after the appointment, could apple geniuses fix your problem. I'm having the same problem since last 1 week. I took my MBPrd to Apple service center here and they said may be it is a hardware problem and will take them about 3 weeks to fix, since I live outside USA and they dont have proper hardware availibility here. Please let me know what diagnosis you got, may be it will help me. Thnx

HI RanaKaiser. They told me the battery had failed and had to order a new one. It took 3 days to arrive and they quoted 48 hours to fit once they got it, but they fitted it in 1 day. The battery is glued to the top assembly and I saw on the job sheet that if out of warranty this would have cost £289 plus tax - worth bearing in mind when the battery needs replacing out of warranty.

Thnx a lot Stephen, atleast now I know what the problem is. MBPr are all less than 6 months old and so battery falls under warranty. I hope your one is now working fine.
